Okay, ALL of my software is up to date. I have tried the useless 'trouble shooting' tips provided by Apple. My iPhone will not open iTunes. I tried it manually, nothing. It's as if it's not even there. It is now 1:45 am, I have been at it for 2 hours. I read about a thousand posts and haven't seen anyone with my problem. Am I overlooking something basic? Is there something I am missing? Does anyone want to see the first YouTube video of an iPhone being smashed with a hammer?
